A conversation between me and EJ Runyon

EJ Runyon and I had a LONG and very interesting conversation about my story “Lightning My Pilot.” We get into areas of general craft, but it’ll help to read the story (if you haven’t already) to understand some of what we talk about. Otherwise, dive into the first part of the interview!

Any comments? Feel free to leave some here, but definitely leave questions or comments at EJ’s blog: join our conversation! 🙂

Oh, and PS: I’ve added a new “Interviews” page to my blog, under the “Writing” menu, where you can find interviews I do with other writers and interviews people have done with me. I’m planning to expand the interviews I’ve done with others soon (including an exciting interview I hope to post early next month), so stay tuned. And if you want to interview me, just drop me a line — I’m fun to talk to. 🙂


E.J. Runyon's Author Blog

I read an online story by my guest, Samuel Snoek-Brown recently.  And it touched me so much, I re-blogged it on my site here.

Here’s a link to it: Lightning My Pilot.   I really thought so highly of it that, as a ramp up to National Novel Writing Month,  I’ve invited the author to engage in a three-part talk about the how’s and why’s that went into creating this small gem.

Blog one of three

EJR:  I think there’s something cool in looking at what the first thing your characters say on the page. Either because you…

  1. Thought you’d like to know – I get visitors from around the globe on my site, 43 or so countries so far and growing.
    And your story was clicked on by folks in India today.

    1. Cool! I get some pretty far-flung visitors, too, partly because of the friends I met while living overseas, but I’m never sure how many visitors become readers. Great to know I’m making ripples in India and Europe! My stats have leapt today, too, almost entirely because of the interview. So, thanks again, EJ, and looking forward to parts 2 and 3! 🙂
